Hi I’m Storm.
Welcome to our educational video series “Super with Storm”.
If you’re like me and you’ve had quite a few casual jobs, you might have ended up with more than one super fund.
This could mean you are paying duplicate fees, which costs you money. But don’t worry, it’s easy to fix this.
Combining your multiple super accounts into one account can help you save on fees and keep your super organised, all in one place.
So, how do you even find out if you have any lost or old super accounts and how do you combine them?
Student Super’s ‘Super Search Party’ makes this really easy.
First log into your account.
Then use the menu to go to the page called ‘Super Search Party’.
We’ll send you a security code via SMS. Once you enter the code, you will see all your super accounts including any lost and old accounts. From here you can decide if you want to combine some or all of the accounts found into your Student Super account.
Note: this service uses the ATO’s SuperMatch system, which is currently unavailable, speak to our Member Services Team for help transferring your funds.
You can also choose whether you want to transfer the entire amount or transfer only part of the balance of an account. Don’t forget that if you choose to transfer only part of an account balance that account stays open and you’ll still be paying fees in relation to it.
Just remember to consider the impact of any loss of insurance cover or other benefits before closing any super fund accounts you may have.
The last step is to read and agree to the terms and conditions and hit submit.
